Yesterday we saw the launch of Freeform beginning the more progressive and relateable stages of what once was ABC family. Do not dispear though because they’re still delivering on bringing us good content.
Last night pretty little liars returned once again proving that they have some of the most paitent fans ever! I mean really who is A!!!???? You would think that we would know by now. Not to mention there was a 5 year time jump. Rosewood is still full of drama and unanswered questions and as per usual Emily’s life is a mess. If the season plays out like anything last night then we’re in for a wild ride.
Usually when watching your favorite show commercials are the last thing you care about. However this time around they got me pretty hyped.I can’t be alone right? They reminded us that the Fosters returns January 25th (I swear if Callie’s adoption gets revoked I’m going to loose it) Also Brandon seems to be very selfish in the previews, did anyone else get that vibe? Anyway also on the 25th we’ll see the series premiere of Recovery Road (a show about a teen with a substance abuse problem) sounds pretty promising to me.
During previews we even got a behind the scenes look of the 5th Wave movie. As a long time book reader and Chloë Grace Moretz fan I was all about it.
Perhaps the most exciting thing about last nights Freeform launch was the premier of Shadow Hunters. It’s a series based off of a book series by Cassandra Clair known as the Mortal Instruments (which I love) and if you’re keeping score at home was also a major motion picture which for lack of a better word flopped.
Right off the bat I appreciated the choices that were picked for the lead roles more then I did with the film. If you’re not like me and haven’t read the books or seen the movie I promise I won’t spoil anything but I will catch you up to speed.
Shadow hunters tells the story of Clarie Fray. She’s your average 18 year old girl who’s into art, has an awesome best friend named Simon, has a fantastic relationship with her mother and even has a personal body guard named Luke. Sounds pretty normal right? That is until she starts drawing a mysterious symbol without even thinking twice about it. Not to mention she keeps seeing this beautiful blonde dude that no one else can see.
Wanting answers she wanders into a night club and ends up killing a guy (who ends up being a demon). After the mueder she frantically returns home to find her place ransacked and her mother nowhere to be found.
She ends up in an abandon church where she becomes properly introduced to beautiful blonde dude (Jace) and Izzy and Alec (who are brother and sister). She finds out that the three of them are Shadow Hunters and their job is to kill demons. Here’s the kicker though shadow hunters can only be seen by fellow shadow hunters and or demons.
Yep that’s right average everyday or should I say mundane Clarie isn’t so normal after all. Turns out the badest demon of all Valentine is after Clarie and her family. Why? Well because Clarie’s mom (who is also a badass Shadowhunter) hid the mortal cup from him (it processes great power) and he wants it back.
I can promise you guys based on the first episode and knowing what I know Shadow Hunters is going to be an awesome ride that I look forward to sharing with you all.

Nickelodeon Announces New “Are You Afraid of The Dark?” Miniseries
Nickelodeon has announced the return of its popular 90s era series Are You Afraid of the Dark?” via press release,
“The beloved anthology series will return this October as a brand-new miniseries and follow new members of the Midnight Society as they gather around a campfire in the woods to share scary stories. The miniseries will coincide with the upcoming Are You Afraid of the Dark? theatrical movie from Paramount Pictures, Paramount Players’, and Nickelodeon Movies, in theaters October 2019.”
The original TV series debuted on Nickelodeon in 1990, delivering young viewers tales of terror in the vein of Tales From the Crypt, yet with tamer subject matter. Each episode featured a group of teenagers, dubbed the “Midnight Society,” coming together around a campfire in hopes of scaring one another.
The open-ended nature of the original series meant that there was rarely a focus on crafting an overall narrative to the series, leaving us to wonder if the miniseries will take the same route or, knowing there are a limited number of episodes, if it will craft not only episodic horror stories but also a narrative among the Midnight Society themselves. Additionally, by delivering audiences not only a movie but also a miniseries, this could be Nickelodeon attempting to see if there is enough interest to revive the series in an official capacity.
Since the announcement of the Are You Afraid of the Dark? film, fans have speculated about how the anthology format will translate into a feature film. While details about that narrative are still being kept under wraps, writer Gary Dauberman promised the film will honor the spirit of the original series.
“That show is so important to me. I didn’t want to age it down too much because for it’s time, it had some really disturbing episodes and some really dark episodes. Not every story the Midnight Society told ended with happily ever after or a person learning their lesson and it will never happen again,” Dauberman admitted to SlashFilm. “I really embraced that side of things and I think it’s been a long time. I think fear is healthy for kids. I don’t think we have to always sand down the edges of things and that’s something I really wanted to do with Are You Afraid of the Dark? I think it is scary and I think kids will be scared watching it at times, and also they’ll laugh at times. I think it’s got a great message. I think it’s got a great heart to it but it is still scary. I think that’s great. I think it’s going to open it up to a wider audience.”
